So that guy that dove in front of the Norfolk Train? They identified him and God, I love the media:
County police still are investigating the incident in which Yedlowski was seen darting in and out of traffic along Freeport Road, near the Creighton Hotel, before he reportedly dove in front of the oncoming Norfolk Southern train about 10:25 p.m. Yedlowski, of Freeport Road, had been treated for mental illness in the past, authorities said.
The cause of death was head and chest injuries, according to the county coroner’s office.
The cause of death was head and chest injuries? No shit!? See now, I would have thought that if a person were to dive in front of a speeding train a heart attack would kill him before the actual locomotive did.
But what do I know. I’m not a coroner. Now, had PittGirl been a coroner you can bet that the line next to “Manner/Cause of Death” as released to the media would read: “Duh! He dove in front of a speeding train!”
I get that they need to do an autopsy to determine toxicology and shit like that, but did the Trib really feel it necessary to let us know that it was in fact the TRAIN that killed him? Just saying is all.
